About this Blog
Welcome to a vast topic which none of us will ever finish exploring. Scripture engagement is about all of life. It is listening and responding to God’s Word alone and together with others. It is digesting and living out the Word in every relationship and circumstance. It is unashamedly and competently sharing God’s good news in our world. Above all, Scripture engagement is encountering the living Christ through his living Word.
This blog does not presume to address all aspects of this topic. It does not try and capture everything that is happening in IFES. Its aim is to help you stop and think again about Scripture engagement in your life and community. Its aim is to inspire you through IFES stories and ideas from around the world. In the hope that together we will learn to more fully love, study, live, and share God’s Word.
